raised a cabin on it. In 1773 he sold to orator William Winn (Wynn) by
writing executed September, 1800, acknowledged in Lincoln County, Ky.
Orator lived on the land from 1773 until Commissioners sat to adjust
titles, but a certain Wm. Inglish, since deceased, claimed the tract and
got a certificate by a survey made for the Loyal County, which claim
orator charges is fraudulent. Henry Harmon, Sr., had a son Henry Harmon,

his wife, late Inglish; John and Thomas Inglish, heirs and devisees of
William; Henry Harmon, Sr., answers 27th October, 1804, that Obadiah
Garwood made the first settlement in 1752. Henry was in the habit of
collecting the men and fighting the Indians. On his return from such an
expedition he called at his brother's (Valentine?), who lived near
complainant. One of his sons named Daniel was killed by Indians. Henry
Harman and Hezekiah Harman answer: In 1752 Obadiah Garwood and
his two sons, Noah and Samuel, came from the Northward and settled;
remained some time and then went to remove their families, but the Indian
War broke out and the country became untenable. Valentine Harman removed
to Kentucky about 1775-1776. William Inglish died in 1782 testate,
leaving the land to his daughter Susannah, wife of Abraham Trigg.

they were Samuel and his two sons, Obadiah and Noah. Thomas Pierie

to Clinch in 1772. John Peerey deposes. Jesiah Wynne, son of William,
deposes. Daniel Harman, Sr., deposes 30th May, 1805, that the spring he

In 1771 he came to the head of Clinch and met Valentine, who said he was
coming to it or this country to see after "some Harres that run Hear."

Chericee War he came into this country. William Wynne was in possession
that and the next year, and then his son-in-law Peter Edwards was

of Wm. Wynne, deposes Jeremiah Pate, Sr., of Little River in Montgomery
County, is brother-in-law to Henry Harman, Sr., who is uncle to
Henry Harman, Jr. Henry Harman, Sr., had one of his sons killed,
skalped and massacred by the Indians in the attempt of settling the land
who left a wife and four young children. John Peery (Blacksmith) deposes

|2:120||1807|| Maxwell vs. Pickens, &c.--O. S. 129; N. S. 45--Bill, 1807. Orator is James Maxwell of Tazewell County. In 1772 orator went from
Botetourt, where he lived, to present Tazewell County to make a
settlement. It was then a wilderness. He was in company with Samuel
Walker. Found a tract with some improvements, viz: The foundation
of a cabin, some rails split and some trees deadened. That night
they fell in with a party of hunters, among them Uriah Stone, who
claimed to have made the improvement, and orator purchased it, and
the same year moved his family there and lived until 1784. In that
time two of his daughters were killed by the Indians. William
Ingles set up claim to the land and devised it to his daughter
Rhoda, who married Bird Smith. Thomas Peery deposes in Tazewell
County in 1809, that in 1772, when deponent went to that country,
James Maxwell had made improvements on the lands and had corn
growing in May. In 1781 or '82 Indians murdered two of Maxwell's
daughters and Maxwell removed his family. James Peery deposes that
he went to Tazewell with Major Maxwell. John Peery deposes that
John Tollett moved from Georgia to New River. Thomas Witten deposes that he was on the
land in 1771. Samuel Walker is about to remove out of the country
and William Wynne is aged and infirm in 1807. Mathias Harman
deposes, 1809 that when he first came to this country the land in
dispute was called Ingles's Crabb orchard and there was an old
improvement on it. This was in 1760. Henry Marrs deposes that he
first knew Maxwell on the land in 1773 or 1774. About three weeks
after murder of Maxwell's daughters, two of Robert Moffitt's sons
were taken prisoners by Indians, and about a week after that the
family of Capt. Thomas Inglis was taken out of Burk's Garden by
Indians and depredations were committed until 1793. Daniel Harman,
Sr., deposes 22d June, 1809, that about 49 years ago he was on a
hunting expedition and camped on the land in dispute and took
shelter in a small cabin built there, said to be Inglis's. Col.
Inglis did not himself make the settlement, but it was made by his
uncle, John Inglis. Joseph Hix deposes as above, that 44 years ago
Col. Wm. Inglis told him that the land was his and he claimed it
under his uncle, John Ingles. Lawrence Murry deposes as above, that
33 years ago he was in Wright's Valley at Uriah Stone's cabin.
William Cecil deposes as above, that in or about 1771 he, in
company with his brother and father, was on the disputed land. Deed
dated 24th September, 1805, by John Tollett and Margaret of
Tazewell County to Thomas Pickens: 200 acres by survey in 1753 part

deposes that he came to the Western country in spring of 1775. David
Hosack deposes that in May, 1773, he, with Archibald Morrison and five
others, came into present Ohio County, shortly after McCracken came.
